ArchForKids provides students with hands-on, minds-on learning experiences grounded in architecture, engineering and design. Our programs are rich in design thinking, real-world applications of academic content and civic engagement. Founded in 2013 by experienced architect-educators, ArchForKids partners with schools, museums and libraries throughout New York City and Westchester.
Arts Education Programming:
DESIGN STUDIO – a 2- to 8-sessions. Schools select a theme, from ‘All Around My Community’ to ‘Bridges of NY’, and we design a residency that reinforces curriculum. DESIGN CHALLENGE – a single session program in which students use the design process to respond to a challenge – a great way to culminate a unit of study. AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAMS – we introduce children to the worlds of architecture & design PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT – we teach educators how to use the built environment and project-based learning in their classrooms
